The Danish Royal House has released several photos of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark to celebrate her becoming the longest-reigning Danish monarch.

The Royal House has calculated that she will officially break the record sometime in mid-July. King Christian IV has the official longest reign at 51 years and six months, however, during the first eight years of his reign, he was under a regency as he was a minor. Queen Margrethe II succeeded her father upon his death on 14 January 1972 and will thus break the record.

She is currently also the second longest-reigning current monarch.

The photos were taken on board the Royal Ship Dannebrog.
